Chicory root has a long history of providing support to liver problems. Currently it is popular as a caffeine free replacement for coffee. It is robust, flavorful, slightly bitter, similar to coffee. To make a chicory root beverage, pour 8 ounces of boiling water on one tablespoon of roasted chicory root. Steep it for 7-10 minutes. Add your favorite milk and/or sweetener, just like you would add to a regular coffee. Chicory plant is related to the Dandelion, yet has a blue flower and is called “Blue Sailors” in some places. The leaves can be eaten in the spring as a bitter green much like dandelion, and it has been cultivated as a fresh green fodder for livestock. The leaves are rich in vitamin c. The roots are tonic, help regulate the release of fluids and water-soluble waste, have mild laxative properties and support and regulate kidney and liver function.
